India’s aggressive wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has said that he will donate his match fees for the rescue operations after the glacier collapse in Uttarakhand and encourage others to come forward and contribute.
On Sunday, the glorious glacier at Joshimath in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand caused severe flooding in the Dhauli Ganga river and caused widespread destruction in the high mountain regions of the Himalayas. Rishabh Pant is born in Roorkee, which falls in Haridwar district of the state.
Rishabh Pant wrote on his Twitter handle, “Uttarakhand is very pained to lose its life.” I would like to donate my match fees for relief work and at the same time appeal to people to help as well, before this 23-year-old cricketer mourned the death of people in this natural disaster on Sunday.
He wrote, Condolences and Sympathy to the families of the people affected by the floods in Uttarakhand. Hopefully, relief operations will help those in distress. Rishabh Pant tweeted this after playing a brilliant innings of 91 runs on the third day of the first Test against England at the MA Chidambaram Stadium here. According to officials, more than 150 laborers working in the power project are missing due to glacier breakdown
